A SOUTHERN HORROR, 2010

Waking Snakes

 

I hear you got a new boyfriend

I have never seen him before

Wasn’t he the loaded gun you kept

In your top drawer

 

I got a place of my own now

Where I can hide some things

Its where I keep my black bird

Sometimes she comes out and sings

 

But you, you’ve been sleeping on my floor

and I cant stand you, i can stand you any more

 

I got so many people talking

So many people putting me down

I got so many people talking

You’d think I’m world renowned

 

You never see the vultures

Till you stand still

And when they stop talking

They come in for the kill

 

But you, you’ve been sleeping on my floor

and I cant stand you, i can stand you any more

 

As for you my friend

You ain’t getting away

You might as well have a seat

I got something I need to say

 

I bet that you’ve been wondering

Why I don’t run my mouth

Well if you stopped talking

I’d find a way to spit it out

 

But you, you’ve been sleeping on my floor

and I cant stand you, i can stand you any more
